Tomorrow, Wednesday, February 26, is a day to wear pink to raise awareness for bullying. Why do we wear pink? In Nova Scotia, in 2007, a grade 9 student was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school. Three grade 12 students saw this happening and decided that something had to be done, so they went out and bought pink shirts to give to other students to wear. By the end of the week, most of the students in the school were wearing pink shirts to show their support for the Grade 9 student. This is a great demonstration of school solidarity. Let’s make our school a bully-free place, North Dundas! Make sure to tell an adult if you witness someone being bullied.
Attention all Grade 12 students who are planning on graduating in June! Grad gowns need to be ordered at the beginning of March, so we need you to let us know your size. Please visit room 106 anytime in the next week to try on a sample gown and record your size on the list posted. The gowns cost $25 and you may keep them. Money can be given to Mrs. Hall, Ms. McDonell, or Mrs. Byrd.
Prom season is approaching, and our North Dundas seniors are preparing to sell their prom tickets, but first they have to lower the price. On March 6, from 4:30-7:00 p.m., they will be holding a spaghetti dinner, cake auction, and silent auction, and all of the proceeds will go towards lowering the ticket prices so that everyone has an opportunity to go to prom. Tickets are $10 for those over 10 years old, and $5 for those 10 years and under. Tickets are being sold at school during lunch, as well as on Saturday, February 29, and Sunday, March 1, from 11-3 p.m. Come out for a great meal and support our senior students!
Finally, congratulations to our junior and senior girls’ volleyball teams for their great matches last Thursday, February 20. The senior girls faced a strong Char-lan team in the quarter finals, but unfortunately lost two close matches. The junior girls faced Glengarry in the finals and won their two sets, becoming SD&G champs! Great season, girls!
